My dad passed away in 2016. He didn't want a "normal" funeral. He requested one more air boat ride as a celebration of his life. Captain John helped us make this happen. He worked with me over every element of this unusual request. We had to accommodate mothers with very young children and a full boat of mixed ages. I... More

Captain John was great. Very congenial and a great host, with a variety of great facts about the swamp and its wildlife. Not just an exciting boat ride but he found us a ton of gaters and other wildlife. Highly recommend going with Capt. John.

We booked for 5 people on the same day we went. Captain John and Krista were very welcoming and made this a very special trip. We saw over 2 dozen gators and turtles. The bird life was plentiful and Captain John's commentary added greatly to our enjoyment. It's a beautiful place with very gracious people. We will definitely do this... More

Showed up without booking ahead of time, and Captain John was able to squeeze in enough time to be able to show us the wonders of the wildlife! Captain John was extremely knowledgable about everything within the marsh. He made the trip very fun and exciting!! Would 10/10 go back for many more tours with John!!!!

Went on the airboat with a party of 9 ages 15 to 82. Everyone had a great time. Captain John was great. Very knowledgable about the birds and alligators. Would highly recommend this trip.

Had a great time and got to see lots of wildlife. Capt John was very knowledgeable and helped us find all sorts of wildlife in their natural habitat. We were able to take some great pictures of some of the wildlife as well. Can't wait to go back for another ride.

What a wonderful experience with Captain John. He spent over an hour with us on his new airboat touring Lake Garcia. The wildlife was amazing. Birds of all kinds & alligators too. But the explanation of the flora & fauna was the best. Highly recommended! Howard & Brenda

We had friends visit from Pa. along with our daughter and grandson. Trying to think of something special to do with them, we remembered how thrilled we were when we took a tour with Capt John a couple of yrs ago. Our decision was easy. Not only did our guest love it, my husband and I had the best time!... More
